Why Advertise in the

Driftless Food Guide?

We are so proud of our inaugural 2018 Driftless Food Guide, and can’t wait to make year two even better.

The goal of the Driftless Food Guide is to promote great local farmers, producers, restaurants, and other food and tourism-related businesses that help make our part of the Driftless Region – NE Iowa, SE Minnestoa, SW Wisconsin – so amazing (and tasty)!

We are excited to showcase the best of the Driftless to visitors and locals alike! We’re honored you have interest in advertising your business in the Guide.

Here are the Details:

  • The Driftless Food Guide has a thick matte cover and glossy pages inside.
  • Circulation is 20,000-25,000, distributed free throughout the Driftless Region
  • It’s on stands late spring through fall.

We Feature:

  • Local food… people / things / places / adventures
  • Food-related Business Listings / Directory
  • Farmers Market listings
  • Recipes, events, and other food fun!

Over the past decade we have worked very personally to reach Inspire(d) Magazine’s demographic through key distribution points – regional food coops, coffee shops, tourism outlets, and more – about 150 total. The Driftless Food Guide will land in those same places, and we intend to have them on stands about six months, though folks definitely kept the inaugural issue around even longer.

Local Producer Directory

We’ll also have a Local Producer Directory – simple business listings available for $75 (or free with the purchase of an advertisement for all food-related businesses). Are you thinking a larger ad isn’t in the plan? This might be perfect for you.

Thank you so much for your business and support! We feel so lucky to live in this amazing region filled with top-notch local foods, farms, and businesses. Cheers to a fruitful year!

Our Story

Have you seen Inspire(d) Magazine around the Driftless? We’ve been printing our positive news magazine for going on 12 years! And in 2018, we launched the Driftless Food Guide! We – Aryn, Benji, and Roxie – love to explore local farms, try out new restaurants, and support fellow local entrepreneurs and producers in our region. We thought you might too, so we put together this handy, annual guide. Want to hear more about our story?
